PDRA COVID-19 Member Support Services
The Pee Dee REALTOR Association is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and recommendations in our area. We are abiding by directives to keep us all safer and to minimize the spread of the virus.
In a press conference held Wednesday, July 29, 2020, Gov. Henry McMaster stated, “I am calling on counties and municipalities to enact ordinances requiring the wearing of face masks, face coverings, practicing social distancing, following proper hygiene,” McMaster said. “We’re hoping for the best but we need to prepare for the worst, and the way to prepare for the worst is to have local leadership involved in stopping the spread of this virus and keeping the people safe.”
New measures are in effect beginning Monday, August 3, 2020. Click here for the full July 29th press conference.
The Pee Dee REALTOR® Association encourages our members to follow all safety precautions established to keep yourself, your colleagues, your clients, and your neighbors as safe as possible.
